What will I learn?

Design the technologies of the future

Every day, technology becomes more essential to the ways we live, work and play. This creates huge demand for people who understand the 'how and why' of computing, and have the skills to design, build and manage the technologies of the future.

USC's Bachelor of Computer Science prepares you to meet that demand with core skills in programming, software development, artificial intelligence and data analysis. In this industry focused degree, you'll learn how to design software, applications and systems that solve problems and improve people's lives. Specialise in high-demand fields like cloud and mobile computing, cyber security, wearable technology and the Internet of Things.

In this degree you will:

  • Future-proof your career with strong core skills in programming, software development, artificial intelligence, big data, and data science/analysis
  • Work with Android, Cloud, JavaScript, Java, Python and C/C++ technologies
  • Choose to specialise in mobile computing, cyber security or wearable technologies (the only specialisation of its kind in Australia)
  • Start building a portfolio of software, design and wearables/IoT projects from your first year of study
